href=”author/shubanka-sridhar”>Shubanka Sridhar , 09 Apr 2021Kangana Ranaut (Source: Instagram | @kanganaranaut)

Kangana Ranaut‘s upcoming release, Thalaivi, was an anticipated film among her fans. The multi-lingual film, based on the life and times of the late actress and Chief Minister of Tamil Nadu, J Jayalalithaa, was all set to release on 23rd April theatrically.

However, given the number of COVID-19 cases all over the country has spiked in the past few days, the makers took a decision to push the release.

Just today, the official handle of the film released a note that read:

Dear audience, we are extremely grateful for the tremendous response and unconditional love you’ve shown for Thalaivi trailer. As a team, we have sacrificed a lot in making this film and thank every member of the cast and crew who supported us in this challenging but remarkable journey. Since the film has been made in multiple languages, we would like to release it in all languages on the same day. But with an alarming rise in COVID-19 cases, subsequent precautions and lockdowns, even though our film is ready for release on 23rd April, we want to extend all the support towards the government rules and regulations and have decided to postpone release of Thalaivi. Though we are deferring the release date, we are confident that we will receive as much love from you all then as well. Stay safe and looking forward to everyone’s support.

The film also stars Arvind Swami alongside Kangana and the trailer which release a few days ago was met with a lot of excitement and enthusiasm.

We look forward to watching the film on the big screen very soon.

Naseeruddin Shah Says The Ongoing Insider-Outsider Debate Is ‘Sickening’, Kangana Ranaut Responds

href=”author/shubanka-sridhar”>Shubanka Sridhar , 18 Aug 2020Naseeruddin Shah and Kangana Ranaut (Source: Instagram | @team_kangana_ranaut)

The tragic death of actor Sushant Singh Rajput has led to a lot of discussions and debates about nepotism and favouritism in the Bollywood film industry. It had re-ignited the insider-outsider debate, which blamed celebrities and star kids like Karan Johar, Alia Bhatt and others being blamed by netizens for sidelining Sushant professionally.

While this has created a lot of buzz and is all everyone is talking about, a few people, like actor Naseeruddin Shah, state that they don’t understand why this debate is catching so much fire. Speaking to India Today Television in an interview, Shah dismissed the presence of the ‘movie mafia’ and said that people “who have frustration in their minds towards the film industry are vomiting it out to the press.”

Speaking about the debate and politics surrounding Sushant’s death, Shah said:

It’s sickening. It is absolutely sickening. I have not followed it. I felt deeply grieved when the young man died. I did not know him but he had a bright future and it was a waste of a life. But I did not bother to follow the nonsense that’s being spouted by a whole lot of people. Every person who has any little frustration in his mind, in his heart, about the commercial industry, has been vomiting it out to the press. It is absolutely disgusting. I mean, keep these complaints to yourself, no one is interested.

Hinting at Kangana Ranaut, he said that “nobody is interested to hear the opinions of a half-educated starlet who has taken it upon herself to get justice for Sushant.” He states that it is best if it is left to the law.

Now, getting back at his comment, Kangana’s team took to their Twitter handle and responded to it. She thanked him saying that he weighed all her achievements so far, which none of her contemporaries have, on the basis of nepotism and asked him if he would say the same thing to her if she was Prakash Padukone or Anil Kapoor‘s daughter.

She later went on to share an old video of hers with Naseeruddin Shah from last year, and says that he is such a great artist that his scoldings also are like a learning. She said that she wishes to remember the good times when he told her that he appreciates her and her craft.

Have a look at her tweets:

Thank you Naseer ji, you weighed all my awards and achievements which non of my contemporaries have on the scale of nepotism,I am used to this but would you say this to me if I were Parkash Padukone/Anil Kapoor’s daughter ? 🙂 https://t.co/yA59q7Lwbf

Naseer ji is a great artist, itne mahan kalakar ki toh gaaliyaan bhi bhagwan ke parshad ki tareh hain,I rather watch amazing conversation we had about cinema and our craft last year and you told me how much you appreciate me… 🙏 https://t.co/ZVXKVC4n66

Earlier today, Kangana took to her Twitter to request the government to take Karan Johar’s Padmashri Award back. Read all about it here.

Kangana Ranaut Keeps It Chic For Her Virtual Events

href=”author/nelly-wadia”>Nelly Wadia , 12 Aug 2020Kangana Ranaut | (Source: Instagram | @team_kangana_ranaut)

Kangana Ranaut is unapologetically true to her self. Apart from being a fantastic actress and setting the standard for honest interviews. She’s well-known for her impeccable sartorial choices because she really sets the bar for experimentation. No matter what the actress wears, she always looks polished. Kangana is keeping busy during the coronavirus lockdown with her Zoom conferences and meetings. The starlet gets dressed up and then shares these fabulous OOTD’s on her Instagram. Thank you for being our source for constant inspiration and style goals. On the work front, Kangana will be seen next in Thalaivi with Arvind Swami a biopic on the life of J Jayalalithaa. She will also be starring in an action film called Dhaakad.

Kangana in a saree:

Doesn’t this photograph set the mood? All the decor elements come together so seamlessly to highlight her gorgeous saree. The actress is seen wearing a bold, floral print, cotton silk saree. This black saree from Saundh is paired with a cream, raw-silk blouse. The 3/4th sleeve blouse features a pitta work border. The gold design we see running through the saree makes for an elegant visual. Kangana accessorises her look with a dainty, silver necklace and red flowers in her hair. Every time Kangana wears flowers in her hair, she reminds me of Frida Kahlo.

She kept her makeup neutral by filling in her eyebrows and keeping the blush to a minimal. Her choice of lip colour looked like rust orange, perfect for the day time and even more perfect for a virtual conversation at home. She pulled her curly locks into a tight, top-knot. Lastly, the addition of that tiny black bindi really ties the whole look together. This is the look she chose to wear to the virtual event of Shushmanjali, to pay tribute to one of India’s leaders Sushma Swaraj.

Kangana in a midi-dress:

For a virtual conversation with Rana Daggubati, the actress dolled up again. This time she picked a hot-pink, Broderie Anglaise, midi-dress from Zara. The dress features eyelets or punched hole like patterns in the fabric. These perforations looked like flowers and were visible all over her dress. This full-sleeve dress features balloon sleeves with ruffles that extend to the empire-cut waistline. The hemline of the dress has an interesting zig-zag detailing as well; making this basic dress look quite classy. Finally, she paired this elegant dress with brown, ankle-length, leather boots. It seemed like an unusual choice of footwear but these shoes actually amped up the look.

Kangana kept her makeup soft and minimal with a hint of colour on her cheeks. Filled-in brows and light, smokey eyeshadow finish out her eyes. For her lips, she seems to have dabbed on pink lipstick. She pulled her hair away from her face in a half-up and half-down style.

Kangana Ranaut’s Rakhi Outfit Is A Tasteful Mix Of Prints And Colours

href=”author/sakshi-kore”>Sakshi Kore , 03 Aug 2020Kangana Ranaut | (Source: Instagram | @team_kangana_ranaut)

The pandemic may have rained on all of our parades but nothing can dim the light of Indian festivals. Indians across the world celebrated Rakshabandhan—some virtually and some in real life who were fortunate enough to be with their families. And thanks to our shutterbugs that gave us a glimpse of how Bollywood celebrities are going about the festivities because we can now ogle at their outfits—something that’s been limited in today’s day and age. Latest to be spotted is Kangana Ranaut who was seen celebrating the much-awaited festival with her family in Manali. The actor’s outfit for the occasion was an Indo-western look that came with beautiful Uzbeki embroidery and featured a variety of colours. Scroll ahead to check out her ensemble!

Here’s how Kangana Ranaut accessorised her outfit for Rakshabandhan:

Bright and statement-making was the actor’s style mantra for the day. She ensured this by picking an Uzbeki Ikat kurta from Saundh which mixed multiple prints and hues. Featuring a round neck, the bust of the kurta came in an Ikat design and a squared panel of colourful Uzbeki embroidery. An abstract print in diamond-like shapes was spread evenly on the flowy silhouette from the waist below. The hemline of the kurta was designed with a thick, black border with intertwined red lines and multicoloured tassels attached to the hemline added a playful touch to the look. She teamed her A-line kurta with a pair of black cigarette pants making the outfit an Indo-western one. A black dupatta draped around the shoulders completed her OOTD.

Even at home, Kangana did not fail to accessorise for the occasion in her sartorial best! An oxidised Polki choker served as her neckpiece and pointed-toe boots as her footwear. Taking inspiration from Frida Kahlo, Kangana tied her hair in a bun adorning her hair with multi-hued flowers.

Sonu Sood Says People Trying To Get Mileage Over Sushant’s Death Is Wrong

href=”author/pallavi-manoj”>Pallavi Manoj , 27 Jul 2020Sonu Sood and Sushant Singh Rajput (Source: Instagram | @sonusood & @sushantsinghrajput)

Sushant Singh Rajput‘s untimely demise has caused a lot of uproar and chaos amidst the public with many saying that there’s more to his death than what meets the eye. But many from the industry itself have been questioning how outsiders in the industry have always been treated in the industry. Kangana Ranaut has been at the forefront of this fight for justice for Sushant. Many others like Apurva Asrani and Shekar Kapur have been openly talking about the unfairness of the industry.

In the light of the current situation, Sonu Sood who has been making headlines for his heroic deeds of helping the needy in such a difficult time was asked about the insider-outsider debate. Talking about it to Republic TV, he said that he himself is an outsider and the division, unfortunately, will always be there. He also found it unfortunate that some people were trying to gain mileage from Sushant’s demise which he found incredibly unfortunate.

He said:

Lot of people trying to get mileage, over this subject, that’s very unfortunate. Imagine the family living in Patna, imagine what they must be going through. People who haven’t met him in their life, and they want to sit on a debate which is unfortunate.

He further added:

If we talk about insiders and outsiders, that will always be there, it was there years back and still it is there. Tomorrow if an outsider comes to Mumbai to do something, obviously he will have to do his share of struggling, he is not going to get a godfather who will make a call for him, to make life easy for him. All outsiders who come to Mumbai should have nerves of steel to survive, maybe for months, maybe for years, and if it doesn’t happen, you need to be strong enough to go back to your families, and do something in life. But when you see cases like Sushant, which is so unfortunate, we used to workout together, he was such a great guy, and a successful guy, it sends a wrong message, where the parents don’t let their kids come to Mumbai. ‘The industry is not safe, people will not help you’, it’s not like that.

Sonu Sood recently helped out a farmer by buying him a tractor after he saw a video of his daughters ploughing the field manually.

Anurag Kashyap Reveals He Tried To Sort Things Out Between Kangana Ranaut & Tapsee Pannu

href=”author/pallavi-manoj”>Pallavi Manoj , 23 Jul 2020Taapsee Pannu, Anurag Basu and Kangana Ranaut (Source: Instagram | @taapsee & @anuragkashyap & @team_kangana_ranaut)

Taapsee Pannu and Kangana Ranaut‘s twitter spat has been making the headlines for quite a few days now. It all started with the interview that Kangana gave Republic TV in which she had called out Taapsee and Swara Bhasker for being chaploos (or bootlickers) who refuse to risk their ranks. After watching her interview, director Anurag Kashyap spoke about how Kangana used to be his friend but this new Kangana is a different person.

In a recent interview with NDTV, Anurag opened up about the last time he interacted with Kangana and tried to sort things out between her and Taapsee. According to the filmmaker, trouble had started when in an interview for Manmarziyan Taapsee was asked which product she would suggest for Kangana. Taapsee replied saying a double filter and Anurag had shared a laugh with the actress. In a recent interview, Anurag suggested that he gets that she was hurt by that interview and even decided to call her. He revealed that Taapsee was also his friend and they were saying things to each other and he just wanted to sort things out. But when he did call her to talk about the same, she put their entire conversation on social media.

Talking about it, he said:

I am saying okay, if you are hurt by that, I will apologize for that. That’s what friends do. But she has gone on to a mode where ‘If (you) are not with me you are my enemy.

Anurag has also been tweeting about Kangana saying he doesn’t recognize her anymore and that he had watched an interview of hers after the release of Manikarnika and found it scary.

He wrote:

Intoxication of success and vigour seduces everyone equally, whether it is insider or outsider. “Learn from me, be like me”, I have never heard this from her before 2015. And since then, it has come to the point that those who are not with me are all mean and sycophantic.

Taapsee meanwhile has reacted to all of Kangana’s claims in an interview with the Hindustan Times. The actress said that she too has been dropped from films and replaced as star kids but the fact that Kangana and her sister Rangoli were trying to call her names, discredit for her hard work, and put wrong allegations against her were no lesser than harassment.

Kangana Ranaut Speaks Out About Actresses In The Industry Deviating From Sushant’s Topic

href=”author/pallavi-manoj”>Pallavi Manoj , 20 Jul 2020Kangana Ranaut (Source: Instagram | @stylebyami)

Kangana Ranaut is one actress who is known to say it like it is. She has been unabashedly open about groupism, favouritism, and nepotism in the industry ever since she’s faced it and she’s leaving no stone unturned to shout it out from the rooftops even now. In her latest interview with Arnab Goswami, she talked about various people from the industry including Karan Johar and Aditya Chopra whom police were refusing to question in regards to Sushant Singh Rajput‘s death. She even revealed that she was in a similar situation to that of Sushant a few years ago but somehow got out of it. She has somewhat become a messiah for those in search of justice for Sushant. She even talked about how Sushant was the only one in the industry that supported her when she had first opened up about nepotism.

During the interview, she also talked about how actresses who were not part of an A-lister club or a filmy family were also sucking up to these people just for roles. In a tweet that followed the explosive interview, the twitter handle called Team Kangana Ranaut also called out actresses like Swara Bhasker, Taapsee Pannu, and Richa Chadha for deviating the conversation from Sushant.

Take a look at the tweet:

Sushant who had complained of bullying in his Instagram chats, giving interviews & confirming presence of movie mafia has bn killed but @reallyswara @taapsee & @richachadha trying their best to deviate the conversation #KanganaRanaut has strtd for getting Justice for Sushant.Why?

— Team Kangana Ranaut (@KanganaTeam) July 19, 2020

During her interview on TV she also revealed that giving this interview might mean that she will lose everything and that people may start terming her mad. But many netizens are choosing to stand by Kangana in a strive to make sure justice is served. The hashtag #NationStandsWithKangana has been trending on twitter the whole day as well.

Abhay Deol Says That He Is Happy That More Actors Are Now Voicing Their Experiences In The Industry

href=”author/avya-sharma”>Avya Sharma , 11 Jul 2020

Abhay Deol (Source: Instagram | @abhaydeol)

Sushant Singh Rajput‘s sudden demise created a furore in Bollywood. It reignited the subjects of nepotism and favouritism prevailing in the industry. And celebrities namely Kangana Ranaut, Raveena Tandon and many others opened about their share of struggles in Bollywood. One of those who has been speaking about their experience is actor Abhay Deol. He has been lately talking about the bitter truths of the industry through his Insta feed. And now, the actor through his lengthy post on his Instagram has expressed his happiness over the active debate on nepotism.

In his post, the Dev D actor credited his uncle Dharmendra for being his inspiration. He pointed out that his uncle was an outsider and how he has inspired him to discover his own path in the industry. Further, Abhay said that he has only made one film with his family which was his debut film Socha Na Tha. Helmed by Imtiaz Ali, the film was made under Dharmendra’s Vijayta Films.

Have a look at the post here—

View this post on Instagram

My uncle, whom I affectionately call dad, was an outsider who made it big in the film industry. I’m glad there is an active debate on the practices behind the scenes. Nepotism is just the tip of the iceberg. I’ve only ever made one film with my family, my 1st, and I’m grateful to be blessed and have that privileged. I’ve gone that extra mile in my career to make my own path, something that dad always encouraged. For me he was the inspiration. Nepotism is prevalent everywhere in our culture, be it in politics, business, or film. I was well aware of it and it pushed me to take chances with new directors and producers throughout my career. That is how I was able to make movies that were considered “out of the box.” I’m glad some of those artists and films went on to have tremendous success. While it plays a part in every country, nepotism has taken on another dimension here in India. I suspect caste plays a major role in it being more pronounced here than in other parts of the world. After all, it is “jati” that dictates that a son carry on the work of his father, while the daughter is expected to marry and be a housewife. If we are serious about making changes for the better, then focusing on only one aspect, one industry, while ignoring the many others, will be incomplete and possibly counter productive. We need a cultural evolution. After all, where do our filmmakers, politicians and businessmen come from? They are people just like everyone. They grow up within the same system as everybody else. They are a reflection of their culture. Talent everywhere deserves a chance to shine in his or her medium. As we have learnt over the past few weeks, there are several ways in which an artist is either uplifted to success, or beaten down to failure. I’m glad more actors are coming out today and speaking of their experiences. I’ve been vocal about mine for years now, but as a lone voice I could only do so much. It’s easy to smear one artist for speaking out, and I have been at the receiving end from time to time. But as a group, a collective, that becomes difficult. Maybe now is our watershed moment. #change #equalopportunity #nepotism #caste #jati #nuance #dialogue

A post shared by Abhay Deol (@abhaydeol) on Jul 10, 2020 at 9:34pm PDT

Abhay went onto add that nepotism prevails everywhere, be it politics, business or even film for that matter. In conclusion, the actor who is known for his out of the box film choices said that he is glad that more actors are now coming out to voice their experiences.

Sona Mohapatra Requests Pooja Bhatt To Give New Music Talent A Stake In Their Work’s Success

href=”author/pallavi-manoj”>Pallavi Manoj , 09 Jul 2020

Sona Mohapatra and Pooja Bhatt (Source: Instagram | @sonamohapatra & @shaheenb)

With social media raging with the nepotism debate, Sadak 2‘s poster had received a lot of hate from netizens saying they will boycott the film. Amidst the ongoing war of words between Kangana Ranaut‘s team and Pooja Bhatt, Pooja decided to reveal that Mahesh Bhatt was introducing new musical talent in Sadak 2. She took to Twitter to let everyone know about the same. She talked about how Sadak 2 is launching new talent in terms of a new music teacher who had no connections to the industry whatsoever.

Take a look:

Even #Sadak2 gives birth to a brand new talent in the form of @Suniljeet72 A music teacher from Chandigarh who came to our office with no prior appointment,a dream,a harmonium & a brilliant song called ‘Ishq Kamaal’ that was absorbed into the film on first hearing by my father.

— Pooja Bhatt (@PoojaB1972) July 8, 2020

While this gesture was greatly appreciated by singer Sona Mohapatra, she gave Pooja another suggestion. She suggested that music talent also be allowed a portion of the song’s success. Sona then went on to explain the problems that musicians usually face when it comes to their work. In a series of tweets, the singer goes on to explain how music composers and writers never get a stake in its success. She clears that she wasn’t blaming Pooja or the banner but merely pointing out the tragedy of the music business in India.

Check it out:

That is so nice Pooja.Your banner has been known to spot new talent for sure. Would mean so much more if these musicians had a stake in their music’s success? Everyone just ends up doing the favour of the ‘opportunity’ & this is an endless cycle in #Bollywood. Zero concept of IP. https://t.co/kfAXrXILR9

— Sona Mohapatra (@sonamohapatra) July 9, 2020

& not that I blame you or Vishvesh films. It is a systemic problem in our industry & country; ‘exploit or be exploited’. That music labels in India don’t have an A&R in place that discover, nurture and promote artists – the heart of modern music business is the biggest tragedy. https://t.co/I61FyoJIOL

— Sona Mohapatra (@sonamohapatra) July 9, 2020

& if your banner launches,promotes talent,helps reach a wider audience,it is perfectly right for such artists to be signed to pay u a percentage of their earnings.Thing is most composers,writers don’t from shows.Only singers do.Music dies when it’s source most compromised. #India https://t.co/uSQFFiba05

— Sona Mohapatra (@sonamohapatra) July 9, 2020

Pooja is currently getting severely trolled for engaging with Kangana Ranaut’s team when she said her father launched Kangana. Kangana fans have hit back at the actor-producer saying that she was a newcomer back then and couldn’t take on the mafia.

Kangana Ranaut’s Go-To Layering Technique: Shrobbing

href=”author/sakshi-kore”>Sakshi Kore , 07 Jul 2020

Kangana Ranaut

Kangana Ranaut is an expert in a variety of fields. From being outspoken to delivering world-class films to perpetually serving statement-worthy looks no matter what the day or occasion. The actor regularly makes her way to the headlines—sometimes for her opinions and sometimes for her sartorial quirks. The star who is so bold and daring also has a supremely versatile and experimental personal style. The two major fashion takeaways from Kangana’s stylebook is to always wear what you resonate with and never fail to wear it with confidence. The endorser of fuss-free and comfortable fashion has served a whole bunch of looks in the past to take cues from, and from that list of cues, one of her favourite sartorial tricks that she is a hard and fast patron of is shrobbing.

The baseline of how you elevate the look and impact of your outfit solely depends on how you style it. Layering is one way to up the ante of any outfit and shrobbing is an uber-chic layering technique way in doing so. Shrobbing is not a new trend, however, the word might be. Essentially, shrobbing involves one to simply place their overcoats on their shoulders without actually wearing them. And Kangana is a big fan! Here’s how she manages to pull it off effortlessly every single time!

From adding a trench layer on her saree to shrobbing her pantsuits or looking boardroom-chic with a formal dress layered with a furry overcoat, Kangana is definitely at the forefront of the shrobbing game! I personally love how each one of her outfits is so different and how throwing over an overcoat or a jacket is a simple trick to elevating a look.

Richa Chadha Shares A Strong Message After Fair And Lovely Decided To Rename The Brand

href=”author/avya-sharma”>Avya Sharma , 26 Jun 2020

Richa Chadha (Source: Instagram | @richachadha)

Ever since the skincare brand, Fair and Lovely has decided to drop the word ‘fair’ from its name, netizens and many Bollywood celebrities are lauding the move by the brand. But a few people are also calling it lip service as they won’t discontinue the product.

Bollywood actor Richa Chadha endorsed the move by taking to her Instagram to share a strong message about how just this small change is also a huge step in the right direction and that she hopes things change for the better slowly.

Here’s what she wrote:

NOT FAIR BUT LOVELY”, I had gotten this printed on a T-shirt back in 2015. Yesterday, the brand Fair and Lovely and I were finally in agreement! Yesterday, they dropped the word FAIR from their product name… Before you attack the brand for only paying ‘lip service’, please remember, it takes many generations for ideas to change. There is demand and hence there is supply…We have been told since we were children, that fairness is the only definition of beauty! It is also another unfortunate byproduct of colonialism and casteism! But it’s 2020, and a lot of BS is getting dismantled!
It took me many years of unlearning to gain confidence and start LOVING my complexion! Der aye durust aye, I say.
I welcome this decision by the brand… and it’s not easy… brands have a thousand meetings before they change even the FONT in their logo… I hope slowly and steadily mindsets change… we must continuously and without any influence of the West, define our own idea of beauty. Beauty must be inclusive! Bravo Fair And Lovely

3. Wear Straight-Fit Pants

Ditch the petticoat and wear straight-fit pants as the base before draping your saree. Prerna Mehra aka The Girl In Sky High Heels looks so chic and fashion-forward with this look, right?

Finally in red again! Wearing @sagarsarees in a typically “Prerna Mehra” way, simply with pants. This is my favourite draping style because it’s literally the easiest to drape, most comfortable to move around in, and it’s so dynamic, it looks way to chic to only glance at once. . . .

4. Add A Peplum Belt

When Kangana Ranaut was invited to grace us with her presence at the Cannes Film Festival in May 2019, she chose to stick to her Indian roots by wearing a saree but gave it a contemporary twist. The belted saree has been in trend for a long time but she opted for a peplum style, wide belt along with elbow-length gloves to add a Victorian touch to her elegant look.

5. Style It With A Top + Jeans

Take notes from Masoom Minawala Mehta on styling your saree over a top and denim jeans. The drape becomes faster and much easier. Cinch your waist with a belt and voila! You’ve got yourself a stunning look.

// My Saree, My Way💛 You guys know I love mixing modern & traditional elements & I thought it would be fun to show you guys how I would style a saree in a more millenial, contemporary way. Keep swiping to see the final look. But in terms of HOW – I pre-pleated my @julahaasarees, put a safety pin to hold the pleats together & then just tucked it inside my jeans… Would you try this look?

6. Add A Jacket

In the latest season of Lakme Fashion Week, designer label Mishru took the saree game up a notch with some pre-draped styles. Not only were the colours of the collection serene but the fall of the fabric was perfect, which made the outfits stand out on the ramp. I really liked the sarees that were paired with blazers. That’s another stylish way of wearing your saree.

7. Choose A Statement Blouse

Not only the drape but also the blouse can add so much oomph to a saree, noh? Opt for a blouse with an unusual style that will make a statement as well as grab eyeballs like Rosi Das, a saree blogger who also, added a modern touch by accessorising her look with a pair of ankle-length boots. Looks cool, right?

Police Complaint Filed Against Kangana Ranaut Over Her Video Supporting Her Sister Rangoli Chandel

A police complaint has been filed against the Panga actress, Kangana Ranaut. The actress, in a recent video, came out in support of his sister Rangoli Chandel, whose Twitter account was suspended after a controversial tweet.

The complaint has been lodged by Advocate Ali Kaashif Khan Deshmukh, who resides in Mumbai. A copy of complaint lying with IANS accuses Kangana and her sister of “misusing their stardom, fanbase, fame, money, power and influence with an aim and intent to promote hatred, dis-balance, fights in the country for their personal benefits and gains.”

The complaint also says, “It is pertinent to note that one sister calls for genocide killings, violence and the other sister not only supports her for the same despite nationwide criticism and suspension of her Twitter account, but also gives a label of terrorist to a sect”. 

The actress recently shared a video message saying that if anyone can find a tweet where Rangoli says anything offensive, then they both will publicly apologise. She further mentioned that she and her sister don’t believe that every person attacking the doctors and cops belong to any particular community.

Have a look at the video message by Kangana here:

The actress further stated that, “My sister Rangoli Chandel had specifically mentioned that people who have attacked doctors and police personnel should be shot dead. Celebrities like Farah Ali Khan Ji and Reema Kagti Ji made a false allegation that Rangoli’s comment was community-specific.”

In other news, the Queen star is in Manali these days where she is spending some quality time with her family in self-quarantine.
